Tehran in the Summer of 1979/1358

by Tapesh

Six months after victory of Islamic revolution, no mandatory dress codes forced on people.

 There is freedom of expression, Everybody enjoy the real freedom that immediately disappeared after some clashes between political parties and the start of Iraq imposed war against Iran.

This film is part of a documentary named Tazeh nafas- ha or "Fresh ones" , directed by Kianoush Ayyari.

It is very painful for me to see this video and on the other hand it will be a lesson to the next generations not to fall into this games and not to lose everything that we had to somebody who had been harbouring hatred toward Shah (Peace upon him) for many years and he could not even hide this hatred even years after Shah had died.

It was our mistake and we provided the proper ground for a group of holligans and bullies (Islamic militia) and give them a justified excuse to practice violence and they ( Atleast some of them) wronfully think this is the right path which lead them to heaven !!!!!! and I believe that this revolution and in particular the current gouvernment owes a lot to this so-called " plain-cloths" ( Lebas shakhsiha) and it was not for the sake this group , so many things could have never been forced on people and we would have never lost numerous valuable members of our society.

It is called chronic numbness. It usually lasts over 30 years. 


discussions outside Tehran University

Did I hear the internasionale at the begining?

I was only a kid then, but remember my Late uncle who had not long been released from the Shah's jails used to go to Tehran University every day with his political books and pamphlets. I know that, because my grandmother used to beg him to stay out of trouble and go  abroad to study. I remember his friends, they all wore glasses and had thick moustache..........

Very moving...

by Datis on

I remember most of those scenes; it took me back to my teenagehood and made me cry! Perhaps because I knew a lot of those young men and women who gathered near Daneshgah and Pahlavi Crossroad and discussed their thoughts and distributed publications; those who were soon afterwards tortured and killed by the hijackers of the unnecessary revolution.


Judging by the logo on the top right, it appears that it was shown on the I.R television! (If I am not wrong). Why would they show this documentary other than shooting themselves in the foot!


Thanks a lot Tapesh, great film.
